Arrive in Pisa
Begin your private Pisa Day Trip from Florence when your driver picks you up from your hotel in the center of Florence. Take a relaxing drive through the Tuscan countryside and then arrive in Pisa. Did you know that this is the birthplace of Galileo? According to an ancient myth, Pisa was founded by refugees that came from a Greek city called Pisa, in the Valley of the river Alfeo. This is why locals in Pisa are commonly called “alfei”.
Climb the Leaning Tower of Pisa
Visit one of the most famous Italian monuments, the Leaning Tower of Pisa, and the Field of Miracles (also called the Square of Miracles), the area where the bell tower sits. The Leaning Tower took over 200 years to build, with several mishaps along the way. Because of the marshy sot land it sits on, the tower leans at a significant angle to one side. In fact, the word “Pisa” comes from the Greek word for “marshy land”. Unfortunately, the architects charged with building the structure did not take this into consideration. If only they knew how popular their error would become! You’ll have enough time for a photo op in front of one of the most well-known landmarks in the world.
You might wonder why the tower was constructed in the first place. It was to show off! In the 12th century, Pisa was an important city. After conquering Palermo, those in charge of Pisa decided to construct the Field of Miracles to display the valuable wares ransacked from Sicily. Today, the square is the main attraction in Pisa. In addition to the remarkable leaning tower, the Square of Miracles is also home to the Pisa Cathedral, or Duomo di Pisa, and the Pisa Baptistery.
Despite how it looks, the Leaning Tower of Pisa is safe to climb! It might look a little scary, but the famous tower’s structural integrity is monitored on a constant basis. In fact, so many visitors to Pisa are eager to check off climbing the tower from their bucket list, reserving a ticket is a challenge. But don’t worry - we take care of your skip the line Leaning Tower of Pisa tickets. This is a good thing - the climb to the top of the tower is a must-do experience on a visit to Tuscany.
Discover the Birthplace of Leonardo da Vinci
Next, visit the small medieval village of Vinci, the birthplace of the famous Renaissance artist Leonardo da Vinci. Feel the power of history as you trace the footsteps of the man who changed the world with both his art and inventions. Enter a 1,000-year-old monastery and take a walk surrounded by centuries-old olive trees. Eat lunch* in Vinci and walk the same streets that Leonardo did.
Note: The cost of lunch is not included in the price of the tour, but we are happy to book a restaurant for you.
Visit the Da Vinci Museum
On this Private Day Trip From Florence, visit the Da Vinci Museum dedicated to one of the Italian Renaissance polymath whose areas of interest included astronomy, architecture, botany, cartography, engineering, invention, mathematics, music and more. Located inside a former castle, you’ll learn about the paintings, inventions and machines accredited to one of the greatest Renaissance figures. Then, climb to the top of the Vinci tower for an unforgettable view over Vinci and Tuscany! The museum is an extremely family-friendly place, with many interactive machines that both adults and kids can play with. Tickets to the museums are included.
Piazzale Michelangelo in Florence
After the Da Vinci Museum, return to your VIP vehicle and drive back to Florence to visit Piazzale Michelangelo, to experience the best view over the iconic rooftops of Florence and the famous Brunelleschi Dome on the Florence Cathedral. After that, your private driver will drop you off at your hotel and say farewell.

You can't go to Italy and not see the Leaning Tower of Pisa! This day trip was perfect for my girlfriend and I. We had roundtrip transportation there and back and we got to see the Da Vinci Museum which was pretty cool. The best part was trying to line up our hands correctly for the perfect picture "holding up the tower". People all over the lawn in front of it were doing the same. It's a lot harder than it looks! But a very fun experience.
Amazing Pisa Tour
This was such a great tour! My family and I were so excited to see the leaning tower of Pisa and everyone was so helpful and kind, it really made our trip. I can't recommend this enough!
I loved this tour of Pisa! Be sure to grab a picture of you holding up the tower if you opt for this tour!
